Make March Less Stressful for Florida's Wild Birds

Dinner Bell FeederSimply put, March can be a difficult month for Florida's wild birds.

Early in the month, Florida's wild birds' natural food supply can fall to a pretty low point. Insect populations are meager, and some of the wild fruits, berries, seeds and nuts are either hidden or might be undesirable. Unpredictable weather doesn't make life any easier.

Florida's sunny, warm, spring-like days can turn into cooler, damp conditions that challenge birds' survival skills. And to make matters worse, this is all happening as some Of Florida's wild birds prepare for nesting season.

However, these various challenges provide you with one of the best opportunities of the year to help your backyard habitat guests!

Providing Food Makes a Difference

Offer your wild bird guests lots of high-energy foods, such as peanuts and suet. Loaded with fat and protein, these are beneficial substitutes for the scarce insects many birds would eat if they could find them.

Counteract the lack of natural insects by offering protein-rich mealworms. They are eaten by numerous species of Florida's wild birds and can be a lifesaver during an unexpected chilly snap.

Florida's Nesting Wild Birds Need Help, Too

Birds build open-cup shaped nests in trees or on the ground, or they nest in cavities (or holes) in the safety of Florida's trees. By placing nesting materials and installing bird houses around your Clearwater/Safety Harbor backyard habitat, you can entice more wild birds, such as bluebirds, wrens, chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, woodpeckers, Purple Martins, swallows, owls and Wood Ducks. Bird houses can make your birds' lives a little easier. After all, they have already expended a lot of energy establishing territories, courting and looking for scarce food.

If you are using a functional bird house to provide your wild birds with a home, be sure it meets these six requirements:

  • Designed for the species, according to bird’s size and nesting requirements
  • Ventilation holes to provide release for heat build-up
  • Easily cleaned
  • Easily mounted or hung
  • Durable to withstand several seasons of use
  • Drainage holes in the bottom of the house

Come on into your local Wild Birds Unlimited in Clearwater/Safety Harbor and found out how you can help Florida's wild birds during their seasonal transitions!
